  • No. of arrangement of n different things in a circle =$(n-1)!$
Total no. of ways without any condition =$5!$
No. of ways in which two particular persons are together=$4!.2!$
(i.e., assume the two persons to be 1 then there will be 5 persons (4! ways) and
the two persons can interchange their positions in 2! ways.)
$\therefore $ no. of ways in which two persons are never together is
